Holy moly. My first game (started on semi-pro and the next one up), 8 minutes as Vegas against Dallas and I ended up winning 13-10.

Gotta find some sliders.

Hope to try team out in preseason tonight, I use Mike Lowes sliders.

Re: How's your franchise mode going? NHL 18

I created our EASHL team offline and also created anybody who has played with us since 2008/09. I used the EASHL player attributes as a default for creating the players for who they use in EASHL games.

Examples

Hitting Sniper - Ovie 6’2 205
Jumbo Playermaker - Thornton 6’3 220
Two Way Dangler - Datsyuk 6’0 195
Playmaker - Granland 6’0 190
Two Way Forward - Bozak 6’0 200
Sniper - Cami 5’11 185
Grinder - Marchand 6’1 205
Power Forward - Hartnell 6’4 220
Enforcer - Martin 6’6 230
Dangler - ??? 5’11 195

Puck Moving D man - Karlsson 6’0 205
Offensive D Man - Barrie 6’1 200
Two Way D Man - Elder 6’2 205
Defensive D Man - Girardi 6’4 220
Enforcer D Man - ??? 6’4 230

Stand Up Goalie - Petr Mrazek 6’2 200
Hybrid Goalie - Kari Lehtonen 6’2 200
Butterfly Goalie - Bobby Lu 6’2 200

I then edited down some of the attributes to those players above from say 90’s to 88’s to 85’s. Basically team full of 2nd/3rd line guys like EASHL wants. With some lower rated guys to fill out 4th line and depth.

Was easy to use this as a base and create the guys quickly. Gave each the equipment they use etc as well, also all 28 guys with different looks from faces, hair, beards, etc.

Just now trying to see what works with taking this team into a franchise mode.

I tried the 32nd team expansion. Drafted all 650k guys. Tried signing all my created guys. Did this 3 times, can’t do it. I’ll get all but 5 or 6 because we are too expensive. Lol. I need to find a way to where the CPU won’t sign those 5 or 6.

Worst case I just replace the Yotes in a classic franchise and go from there. I would really love to figure out how to make this happen as the 32nd team though. Any tips on how to keep created players from being signed?

Re: How's your franchise mode going? NHL 18

I'm thinking of starting one with my boys the San Jose Sharks.

The idea would be to kindof tank? (Like a shark tank) Trade away older players like Thornton, Ward, or Couture to bring in more picks and younger talent.

It'd be a youth movement in San Jose.

Thoughts?
